Within 60 miles of Warren County, there are hundreds of thousands of available workers — and thanks to the growth of the nearby Triangle and Greater Richmond areas, that number is expected to continue increasing.
Some of the most popular industries include services, manufacturing, retail trade, and construction and specialized training is available for a number of these fields.
A testament to the potential that Warren County has to offer, the global manufacturing company Glen Raven brought an $82 million investment to the county, creating 205 new jobs in the process and $6.5 million in annual salaries.
